This edition of Generation Boomer promises to be very good reading as you will be introduced to some interesting people living in our community.
For those of you that have been frequent patrons of Dreamers Coffee House, you should stop by and visit new owners Tammy and Kayla Sisson, the mother and daughter team who have been brewing your cup of Joe with a smile for the past year. Dreamers, located at Saint Lawrence and So. Virginia Street is now "JoStella Coffee Company," named after Tammy’s father Joseph Stella. Tammy is also the owner of Lend-A-Hand Senior Services, a personal care agency providing care for people needing assistance in the home. Lend-A-Hand was the first personal care agency to open in the Truckee Meadows, and has been providing caregiving services to families the past 25-years. With such strong family values, we know that JoStella will be just as successful as Lend-A-Hand. Here’s to you Tammy and Kayla, and husband Paul Sisson for your dedication and investment in the MidTown district.

Marschall has been the driving force consulting the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services to tackle the large problems that impact peoples lives every day in the state. Her work with Social Entrepreneurs has provided a blueprint of direction and policy heading into the future. Well-done Kelly and your skilled team at Social Entrepreneurs, Inc.
Willis Lamm has authored a column giving us a look at a very special group of people dedicated to the preservation of wild horses and other wildlife living on the range. The "Medicare Mob," as he calls them, are a group of selfless, hard working boomers and seniors who rescue endangered animals, often at their own peril. Lamm has given us a behind-the-scenes look at rural Nevada many of us can only imagine.
And finally, meet Don Asher, a retirement coach and author who recently relocated to Northern Nevada. Don has done doctoral research on retirement, giving us a glance into what many have experienced in retirement and how to enjoy the second half of life and still have fun. This is an important topic for many boomers thinking about the Golden Years and what it will mean to personally them. Thanks for sharing your insights Don!
